Life is Wonderful!!

It really really is!

Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop!!  You probably arrived here from Mary's Blog. This blog hop is a big circle so you can just hop from blog to blog until you find your way back here. Today we are going to show you art work from the July Stamp of the Month - Life is Wonderful!



Life can be rough it has a lot of up's and downs. 2011 was not a good year and I was so happy to start a new fresh year in 2012. This past weekend I got into my craft room and got it organized. I really wanted to work on scrapbooking regularly again and so I needed to find out where I was at. I thought I was in 2011 but after all was said and done I washed my hands of it. I have most of it done but decided I would just start fresh with 2012. I tend to scrapbook both now and chronologically so I sat down started my list to work off of for 2012.

My photo's are stored in my computer by month. From there I used to put them into folders of stuff I wanted to scrapbook and I would use that to make a bullet point but yesterday I just sat down and looked at the photos and started my list.

January

  • New Years Eve
February
  • Date night with my daughter
  • silly girls
  • and on and on
Once that was finished I decided what I wanted to scrapbook. I realized I didn't even have a photo from NYE (I told you 2011 was rough) so I found a photo that I liked and noticed the other one where I am gazing out to the future perhaps...anyway I used those and thought that this months stamp of the month could not be any more perfect. So if you are still here reading this I shall stop rambling and show you the artwork!

Tulips


Here is the last card I in a little trio with the Blossom Paper Pack. This one was pretty simple but I added some interest with the faux stitching around the tulips. I also added some Glacier Twine and some Coral Reef Sequins.

Here they are all together.

All about Family

Today we are off on a road trip to go to my honey's family reunion I can't wait as I get to meet lots of new people. I also get to see some that I have not seen in a few months. Since we are traveling I thought I would share this layout with you today. The photos really are not the best and everyone that has seen is has said really that picture...but alas it is the only ones I had to work with and I wanted to document these special moments.

This layout was fun to make and it came together in the end looking super cute. I also used the zip strip to make some faux washi tape.

Cardstock - White Daisy, Sunset, Lagoon, Glacier
Paper Pack - Blossom
Ink - Sunset, Glacier, Canary, Pear
Stamp Sets -  Shower Flowers
Other - Blossom Complements, Blossom Assortment, Coral Reef Sequins

Two of a kind but three in a row

 
Here is another little card that I made using the Blossom Paper Pack. I was inspired by a card sketch from PageMaps. There are a few layers popped up and this block pattern which is one of my favorites to do. I have never just made them in a row though normally I mix them up. I also added some Glacier Twine and some Coral Reef Sequins.

Here are some details of the journaling area.
 
 
Supplies*:Cardstock - White Daisy, Sunset, Lagoon
Paper Pack - Blossom
Ink - none
Stamp Sets -  none

Other - Blossom Complements, Blossom Assortment, Coral Reef Sequins, Make It from Your Heart, Vol II
